One of the least appealing movies I've seen in a while.... When a member of the audience belched loudly, that got the biggest laugh of the day. [17 June 1986, p.E26] show more
At its best Ferris Bueller is a free-spirited romp, a devil-may-care respite from grueling dailiness. show more
This is the funniest teen movie I've seen in eons. show more
Matthew Broderick (Torch Song Trilogy) ,Alan Ruck (Speed) and Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing) are wonderful! A teen plays \"hooky\" with his best friend and makes the school go ragged and nervous Ferris goes AWOL,and takes the day off to see a baseball game.I love this zany movie,when a teen takes over.
It was odd.
Ferris Bueller is the most brilliant, refreshing, envigorating wonderful display of comedy captured on film. You cannot just sit there watching this film without a 'constant' grin on your face, not counting the out-burst of laughter in between...
